Other courses with significant physical science content that are not listed may fulfill the requirement, but require the approval of the Undergraduate Program Director.
Technical Elective Courses (9 credit hours)
BSSE students must complete 9 credit hours of technical elective courses approved by their advisor to fulfill the requirements for their BSSE degree. The technical electives are meant to both broaden the student’s technical capabilities and complement the student’s core BSSE course requirements.
Any elective SEGR course at the 2000 level and above is approved as a technical elective course. However, technical elective courses cannot be used to fulfill both the technical elective requirements and the concentration course requirements (i.e., no double counting of course credit hours toward the BSSE degree).
In addition to SEGR courses, the courses below from outside the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management are approved as technical elective courses. Please note that many of these courses may also have prerequisites.
Concentration Courses (12 credit hours)
BSSE students can select one of the following optional concentrations areas by the end of their Sophomore year. Students who are not enrolled in a concentration are considered undeclared and select four Systems Engineering Technical Elective courses to fulfill their BSSE degree requirements.
Concentration in Engineering Management
Plus select one of the following:
Concentration in Energy Systems
Any elective SEGR course at the 3000 level and above may be taken. In addition to these SEGR courses, the courses below from outside the Department of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management are approved elective courses. However, these elective courses cannot be used to fulfill both the technical elective requirements and the concentration course requirements (i.e., no double counting of course credit hours toward the BSSE degree). Please note that many of these courses may also have prerequisites.
Approved elective courses include:
Degree Total = 123 credit hours
A minimum overall GPA of 2.0 and a GPA of 2.0 in the major are required.
